Morbid Tales Comments

level   (90/100)
역사적 의의를 제하더라도 들을만 한 스래쉬
level   (100/100)
이게 바로 "혼모노"다.

그렇다. 이것은 진짜다.
level   (90/100)
草創期メタルの動きの始まりになった記念碑的なアルバム。音楽性も揃っている。
level   (80/100)
익스트림메탈 뿌리의 앨범이라 봐도 무방할듯싶다.
level   (85/100)
역사적, 자료적 가치가 크면서도 음악적 가치가 굉장히 크다
level   (85/100)
고전
level   (80/100)
sľubný začiatok
level   (92/100)
스피드 메탈 위주의 작곡에서 벗어나 익스트림의 포문을 연 바로 그 앨범.
level   (80/100)
스래쉬메탈의 다른방향을 제시. 많은 영향을 줬던 앨범이다.
level   (90/100)
스래쉬의 끝없는 진화. 익스트림 메탈 태동을 알리는 과도기적 앨범
level   (84/100)
Climatic album one of the best
